Carnivore's Restaurant in Nairobi

industry worker | Sep 12, 2007 07:46 AM

I was recently in Nairobi and went to the famous Carnivore's for dinner. I was anticipating being able to try a wide variety of game meats. We looked at the menu and every item was something I could get a TGI Fridays. We selected the meat sampler for 2, still thinking we could try something different. The platter arrived and the wiater described beef sausages, chicken, and meat. We were a bit confused as we weren't expecting chicken.... The platter consisted of 2 pieces of chicken (very dry. I couldn't finish it), 4 ostrich meatballs (which were very tasty), 2 pork breakfast sausages (identified as beef by the waiter) and 6 slices of beef (think of minute steaks very well done).

I paid and was waiting outside for my girlfriend. She found a manager because she wasn't sure what she'd eaten. He informed her they weren't allowed to serve game and everything was well done for health safety reasons.

To his credit he was horrified that the waiter didn't fully explain everything on the plate and my girlfriend showed up with 4 pieces of crocodile (the only game they are allowed to serve).

Very disappointed.
